A bad start

Omininous from the get go ...

The yarn - I bought 1 skein of KP Alpaca Cloud over a year ago. I was so excited to play with my new ball winder. I wrapped the skein over the backs of 2 chairs. Everything was going well until maybe 1/3 was left. The skein leaped out of the chair and ended up a tangled mess on the floor. It was so messed up that I had to cut the yarn. Sigh.

Fast forward to Monday night. High from finishing Rusted Root, instead of weaving in the ends like a good knitter should, I proceeded to cast on for a small project. I started a lace project from Lisa Lloyd Designs. When I pulled out my little bag of yarn (KP Alpaca Cloud), Little man says, "why are you knitting with floss?" Hmmm it does look like floss, doesn't it? I got as far as 4 rows on the lace.

Last night while waiting for the Chinese take-out delivery, I decided to work on it a bit. While I was in mid-stride he accidentally tugged on my left arm and my stitches fell off the needle. Sigh. I ripped the whole thing and just put it back in the bag it came from. Another day.

Ouch! You've been having a little too much knitting related "excitement" (that's my euphamism for when things go arry). I too look forward to Rusted Root pictures!
